the obama administration for talking about drones to news outlets like "the new york times" and you have one of the is your gates for killing osama bin laden. if you want to know what his policy is, by using flying killer robots to do it, the answer is that he also thinks killing bin laden was a good idea. he wouldn't crash one in iran. any questions? it is days like this when you realize that however important this presidential campaign is and this decision is, that we as a country have to make between these two candidates, our politics are essentially failing right now. they're essentially impotent now for debating questions like this one. choosing between candidates is supposed to be the way we choose between policies in important thing that affect or country including national security. but our politics have been allowed to shrink if one side doesn't want to talk about it, we're not going to debate it as a country. let people in washington figure it out. a new report out today says our secret drone policy, which we've been implementing for the better part of a decade, may be radicalizing
ryan also looking at foreign policy aimed to draw parallels between the obama administration and that of jimmy carter. >> turn on the tv and it reminds you of 1979 tay ruin but they're burning our flags and capitals all around the world. they're storming our embassies. we've lost four of our diplomats. and what is the signal that our government is sipdzing the rest of the world? we're being equivocal on our values. we're being slow to speak up for vir rights, for human rights. for democracy. we're seeing countries stifle freedom in iran, russia and all these other areas and we're saying we're going to gut our national security, our military. that projects weakness and when you do that, the superpower projecting weakness that creates a vacuum, a void and gets by cups who do not fill our interest and means our adversaries are that much more tempted us and our allies are much less likely to trust us like israel. >> again, the president will address a lot of these today at the u.n. general assembly. >>> mitt romney and paul ryan continue their bus tour through ohio. innant interv

want to know if there's any practical consequence, it would be the point that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. president romney might well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. but it does not seem that kind of social conservative question has a lot of civilians in something like a presidential debate. other than health care, i can't see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attack affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it's remarkable. the republicans who during the nineties for a while were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action don't do it anymore. the democrats, john kerry in the early '90s and some others said maybe it's time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down the road. but that's all gone. i have spoken to a republican politician, why is that? the answer was we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it's not worth the cost or the has

in the obama administration. the president has focused a lot on the middle class, both in his policies and the rhetoric, the fact that the way the economy is playing out distributionly has been so skewed. >> i think that's a fair critique. my personal view is there should have been a larger stimulus. that would have helped consumer demand, it would have helped the middle class more. the distributional effects are skewed. the stock market, a lot of people have their pensions in there. a lot of unions have pensions in there. the stabilization of the market and taking the market from 6,000 -- >> and the growth. >> and the growth has helped a lot of middle class families. i think that's being reflected in the battleground support. >> joe? >> one area where i agree with sheila completely is the sort of failure to look at that household debt to gdp chart that you showed earlier and say, this is the problem. there has been a lot of confusion, i think, people talk about the banks, the national debt, whatever. this was the core of the issue, the fact that households had too much debt and that t
creation. 4 million jobs created after the first year of the obama administration, legitimate issue to say he is making progress. on foreign policy, i think it should be an issue of what we just discussed. but i think it will be laid in the context of the president not only having stopped the war in iraq, gone and violated pakistani air space, which wasn't done before, and getting al qaeda in pakistan, that's bin laden and putting it in the context of 12 embassies attacked in the 8 years of the bush administration and losing a u.s. diplomat in pakistan and our president recognizing that we have to shift our focus, not just in the global war on terror, but to dhiena. i think this may take a bit of luster off, but overall, i think it's quite a good step that he has taken for america, securing our peace and prosperity. >> eric: that's the final word. >> thank you for having me. >> eric: thank you both. >> jamie: major development in the showdown over iran's nuclear program. the economic sanctions are stinging hard with the israeli finance minister, saying iran's economy is paying a heavy pric
debate at the heart of the presidential race, which is, going forward, this is the obama administration's tagline. they would say let's let the agency do its job. the republican position is is ill-advised and we would like kill it or change it. host: how widespread is predatory lending these days and what is the agency currently doing about? about guest: predatory lending is deceptive lending practices o. it is extremely widespread. if you pick up a credit card application, you will see dozens of pages of fine print that is hard for anybody to really get through and most people don't even try. there are teaser rates, for instance, a lower rate on credit cards in a short amount of time that would triple or quadruple and they don't tell you that the upfront. it's in the fine print. it's very widespread. almost the essence of the new agency is to and changed the terms of debate so that predatory lending is very hard for companies to get away with, so that they have to make their money helping people save and invest and advance themselves financially rather than the way the system now is. s
something about libya, say, reporting about how maybe obama administration -- especially if you do not already like obama, maybe that will help inform your choice of whether to vote for him, but not, it seems lately, because it has given you the information or the tools to think about what ought to happen in libya or what our policy in libya ought to be. we have soared to come to present foreign policy coverage as character coverage. i think that those categories in a way get confused. you have separated them out. are we learning about the world when we read that article? or are we learning that romneycare is about the little guy or whether obama is brave? i think it is a tricky question, because you might, indeed, get information you feel you need to vote for this person or that person, but there is also the other legal issue about learning about what the article is ostensibly about, what are the actual problems in the world beyond the election, what they might be, and i do not think that the character thing is negligible. it is important if somebody cares about the little guy. th
are missing in action almost as if the obama administration's doctor and has been abandonment rather than one of strength. stuart: your position -- you are in a tiny minority. we very rarely hear from practicing muslims the kind of the opinions you frequently express on this program. you have lost the debate. you have lost the numbers. you have no numbers on your side. >> we have no numbers when it comes the loudest voices and strongest forces of evil between the old soil in the middle east that was told by hosni mubarak and those like mahmoud ahmadinejad but lost in the din is the quiet minority bleaker still the majority that needs some power of america and the west to defend them and stand by them from the grassroots up but they are not getting any attention. they are not having riots and they had demonstrations in libya at the washington post and yet we have been ignoring them because the president doesn't want to make a case for liberty. the president wants to stay away from meeting with leaders of the free world and seeing we're not only behind them but want to lead from the front for t
by the previous administration and the obama administration to confront china on trade issues. now he's saying, this is a door mat. i'm the one who will be tough. >> that was romney 2.0. that's clear that's the case. one of the specific cases that romney criticized the president on was the tire dumping case, which has resulted in jobs in cooper tire and finley, ohio. mitt romney just senses an opportunity here. there's no real -- there's been no real interest in his career in standing up to china. the president is doing the right thing. i urged him to be a bit more aggressive. he needs to move more aggressive on currency. this legislation would matter. there's no question. the president recently came to ohio to announce an auto parts trade action. we went from a billion-dollar trade deficit to $10 billion over the last ten years. that's a lot of job loss and a lot of jobs we could start to regain with with we enforce the rules that china clearly is cheating. they subsidize capital and energy and land and water. they don't play fair on currency. we stand up to them, it means good jobs and it wi
percentages. has the obama administration been successful at branding the medicare plan of the republicans as voucher care and are senior citizens moving away because they're afraid of the medicare changes? >> the ryan budget plan existed in terms of the 2010 election when republicans won 65 plus seniors by 21 points. part of the dynamic that exists here is, in fact, seniors are really unhappy with president obama's health care plan. what you see is this significant concern handling medicare, four years ago republicans would lose that by 25 points. now it's down in low single digits where republicans made significant progress. that is reflected in the medicare poll. >> why are senior citizens in the polls moving away from mitt romney toward barack obama. >> i guess i'm not seeing that in the survey the way you are. when i take a look at issue handling and medicare and seeing how we dramatically neutralize that issue, i'm not seeing it the same way. >> i think medicare is one question. the other question is senior citizens and who do they support? the movement is definitely toward barack ob
? this as the obama administration is still under fire over its response to the deadly attacks in libya and over security concerns at the consulate even before the attack. former state department official joel ruben will join me live. first, there's a lot going on today. here are things we thought you should know. florida's republican party is filing an a elections fraud complaint after finding suspicious voter forms in even more counties in the state. as many as ten is the new number. the forms are tied to the strategic allied consulting, a firm hired by the republican party in that state to register voters. the firm has been fired. it has also done voter drives in colorado, nevada, north carolina and virginia. the white house says a cyber attack on its computer system never posed any threat to the classified information. officials say the attack was ultimately foiled and no data was stolen. >>> new york city police dropped assault charges against a congressional aide who's accused of getting into a fight with lindsay lohan at a manhattan hotel. 25-year-old christian labell worked for congressm
intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare their defense. well, actually government secrets to prepare a defense, i don't think so. here is a secret for you, the top terrorist, osama bin laden, is dead. >>> no doubt if the president wins re-election those and other far right scenarios will get a new luster for the second term. because fantasy leads to more fantasy. >>> up next, the big debate last night between elizabeth warren and scott brown. well, who won that one? that was a top of the card. who lost and what does it mean for the battle sfor the senate? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing tra
. this is nothing new to the obama administration. but it is new to hear him speak at length on this issue. so maybe what it will do is to open people's eyes to what's happening to women and girls in this country, specifically. >> victoria? >> the rhetoric used, where it's slavery. you don't have a choice. you didn't leave because you couldn't. and i wanted to talk about one sub segment of sex trafficking which deals with latin american women. over the past two decades what we've seen these immigrant smugglers going to small towns in mexico, very poor villages and saying hey, we can get you a job cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables. it's going to cost about $2,000 but you can pay that off once you cross the border. so they come over and you fall into the same pattern of sexual abuse and tell you you're not worth it, it's your fault. >> and you have a debt to repay. >> on top of that, you don't know english and there is the threat of being undocumented that i can call ins at any moment if you don't do what i say. add on the threats and the women never leave unless there's an external force that come
been demanding what he calls redlines from the obama administration in terms of some sort of an idea of exactly at what point when iran reaches a nuclear threshold. at what point would the u.s. take military action to stop them from moving forward. the president made clear that he still believes the tough sanctions put in place against iran need more time to work. frankly, if we get up on time and and diplomatic space come and see khalsa, this will work out in the end. he also added that this threat at the end. >> that is why we are holding the iranian government accountable and we will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> interesting as you know, the president is not doing any one-on-one bilateral meetings with any world leaders, including benjamin netanyahu. the white house had made clear that the prime minister is not actually in new york at the same time as the president. nonetheless, israeli officials have said that they have made clear they would like to go to washington at the end of the week to meet. they believe this is a critical time for the
be a $1,700 tax on american families, and that number comes from the obama administration. >> 30 seconds. >> let's stipulate we are not going to do cap and trade. senator fisher says human beings are not warming the planet, and i say we are. i say it is a compelling problem and we need to address it. we need to have a debate about how we are going to address it and what our strategy is going to be. otherwise, we are going to wonder why we did not do anything about it. >> a question for senator kerry. >> there is a lot of discussion about lowering tax rates by limiting deductions on loopholes, but one person's loophole is another person's deduction for mortgage interest or state and local taxes. would you favor eliminating or reducing any of those, or would you offer other specific changes? >> the big four are markets reductions, and i think you can scale it back. i think there is a great pay off through simplification. you have got to believe it. you have to believe simplification can generate more revenue. if it generates more revenue, you cannot do it. i think there is a huge pay off t
of relief. not just in the obama administration but many who said, look, the deadline is next spring, next summer. there isn't going to be a possible israeli military strike before the election. but iran is doubling down. just today prime minister ahmadinejad back in tehran gave a press conference. and he said this, brooke, i'll quote him "we are not people to retreat on the nuclear issue. if somebody thinks they can pressure iran, they are certainly wrong and must correct their behavior." at least in terms of words, which actions are more important than words, but in terms of words not backing down at all. from is going to be the crucial question for the next president whether it's barack obama or mitt romney. >> absolutely. erin burnett, thank you very much. >> good to see you, brooke. >> good to see you. see you tonight
that the administration is projecting weakness by signaling -- by sayingxplicitlyhey doot that's what president obama said on "60 minutes" this week, saying does mitt romney want to start another war. has the president signaled too affirmatively he does t want to exert milary force, thate wopr toidt a all costs? >> well, i don't think one wants to create the impression ta you want to avoid the use of force at all costs. i think you want to create the impression, which e president has done, that the option is on the table tt we have the means to act on that option but earllo ihe preference. i'm sure that governor romney also wants diplomacy to be the preference. the question is, is there enough pressure put on iran to change its behavior. no question you have unprecedented pressure on it economically. underpinning that economic pressure with the kind of military options that will convince the iranians that if they're not prepared to reach a diplomatic outcome, they're the ones who pay the bigger price. >> the administration has ceainly indicat that they wiot tatn having a nuclear weapon. but how will we kn

and three administrations, the obama white house. a midder middle east diplomacy for msnbc and washington institute. dennis, let's talk about what netanyahu signaled he's doing today, demanding an ultimatum to iran on its nuclear program something the administration, the white house, has insisted they needambiguous. who is right here? >> imnot sure there is as wide a gap as you think. i believe what you're seeing is an agreement on the objective of making certain that iran cannot have nuclear weapons and then also i think agreeing that you have to come up with some kind of threshold to know when the objective of prevention has a meaning and it doesn't lose its content. i do think where the prime minister's coming from is, he wants to put, i think, a premium on having a clear definition of what's the point past which if iran crosses that particular line or tloesh hohreshold you'r longer in a position to prevent them. my guess he'll focus on why it's unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapons capability and he'll speak in effect to the world about coming together on not just having ope
being undeniable good thing for the administration, for obama, in ohio, romney's particular formative personal problems i think were coming -- are losing him the election in ohio as well. the rich guy, the boss, the -- all that stuff, that is part narrative, part real, just is killing him. >> the james lipton was on this program and said another word for job creators is, bosses. and that's exactly -- the republicans have done a masterful job in sort of changing the game on that but mitt romney is a boss fund mentally as you said. melinda, your colleague, e.j. dion in the washington post writes the latest washington post polls in ohio and florida underscore the trouble mitt romney is having gaining on the economy. basically e.j. saying the republicans have had a very sort of crass attitude towards how the americans will vote. if you're looking at the poll numbers seems like the american public has more of a nuance view as far as the economy. >> the interesting thing to me about the numbers in ohio, is that even those who say the economy is going badly, blame kasic as much as they blame
me former ambassador dennis rob including iran in three administrations most recently the obama white house. he's a middle east diplomacy analyst for msnbc and with the washington institute. so dennis, what about the speech today and the criticism you've heard from dan senor that the president is communicating weakness and is almost taking the military threat off the table by privately communicating and signaling that we really, really don't want to go to war? >> well, i don't think he did that in today's speech. i don't think he personally has done it. he has made it clear the objective is prevention not containment, meaning we will prevent an iran from having nuclear weapons, not simply contain and live with it if it gets it. that has an implication if diplomacy fails. number two, there's been a dramatic buildup in terms of our military forces in the persian gulf. we have two carrier battle groups in the persian gulf. the question is, is iran under pressure to affect their behavior? obviously the president has succeeded in putting together a coalition that has put iran over enormous
